Lathams look to the future with latest cladding solution


Accoya® – the modified, highly durable and dimensionally stable certified softwood – is now available from all ten of James Latham’s nationwide distribution sites.

Accoya® wood is a perfect solution for exterior cladding, siding and façades where aesthetics, less frequent maintenance, dimensional stability, durability and insulation value are key factors.

Accoya® wood can be used to create simple or complex designs with a choice of coating finishes, delivering typically improved lifetimes. It can be opaque coated or, for those wishing to enjoy the natural look of wood, translucent coated.

JL2Plus, with a 50-year guarantee when used externally and 25-years when used in the ground, Accoya®’s low maintenance requirements add to its ‘whole life’ cost effectiveness and environmental credentials and this versatility makes it ideal for use in residential, commercial and industrial applications.

Paul Leach, James Latham’s Group Product Sales & Development Manager for Accoya said:

“Accoya® wood is fast becoming the material of choice for architects, contractors and joiners for many exterior applications which were once only feasible with non-sustainable material. In addition to cladding, sidings and facades, Accoya® is also ideal for windows, doors and decking.

“As well as our established customer base who are now seeing the benefits of Accoya® for cladding and other exterior projects, we’ve also seen it open up opportunities with new customers as demand for sustainably modified products continues to grow.

“Accoya® is a fantastic material for external specification and fits perfectly with our already established range of sustainable products.”
